Some porn stars hide in the shadows, attempting to shove away the very dish they so eagerly eat from. Kim Kardashian and Paris Hilton would like you to forget about the grainy videos that are responsible for their fame, but still ask you to buy their new fragrance.
Alexis Monroe is not one of those porn stars.
A self-described free spirit, Monroe said she always knew she'd be doing porn. And two years into her career in adult entertainment, she couldn't be happier. Good for her, we say. She found something she enjoyed, and she's doing it.
And a locked door and quick Google search will prove to any suspicious viewer that Monroe has the right stuff.
We caught up with the bubbly Monroe before she heads down to Fort Lauderdale for Exxxotica to talk about porn, her curious fans, and -- of course -- Game of Thrones.
New Times: How long have you been in the adult film industry?
Alexis Monroe: I have been in the industry for almost two years now.
So you're kind of a rookie?
Yeah, I'm a little bit of a baby.
Do you remember the first adult film you ever watched?
Actually, no I don't. I watched a lot of them before I got into the industry. Just to kind of see what it was like and to get a grasp on what I might be getting myself into.
When you first started watching them, did you ever think to yourself that you'd be doing them one day?
Oh, yeah. Definitely. I'm a free spirit, so I kind of always think that I can do all of the craziest things. I feel like if you think you can do it, you can totally do it.
What kind of movies do you prefer doing? Do you like the really scripted ones where there's a storyline and you get to play a character, or do you like the ones that just get right down to business.
I kind of like the scripted ones only because I'm kind of a clown. I like the fun characters that I can really get into. I'm not so much a serious movie star kind of person. I like the fun scripts that are wild and crazy.
What's your favorite character you've gotten to play?
I got to play a country pop star for one of my scenes and it was so cool. I had to try to talk in a country accent, and that was probably the hardest part of the whole scene.
Did you get to sing?
No. Thank god [laughs]. I'm not a singer. I kind of sound like a cat in heat.
Have you ever done any movie parodies?
I have not actually.
Would you like to be in one?
I would. I did a cosplay movie for Wicked last year and it was really, really fun. But I would definitely do a parody.
If you could do a porn parody of any movie what would it be?
Oh, God, I don't know. I'm really bad with movies. I really don't know. I like action movies a lot, but I don't really have a favorite movie.
So I take it you're not a big TV fan either?
Actually I'm addicted to Game of Thrones right now. And I really like the show Revenge a lot.
I love Game of Thrones too. So if you could have sex with one character on Game of Thrones, who would it be?
Oh, obviously that's Khaleesi. That's the only reason anyone watches the show, for her and her dragons.
Jon Snow doesn't do it for you?
No. I definitely watch it just because of her and the dragons. Last week's episode they didn't even show her at all, and I was very upset.
So, a big part of Exxxotica is interacting with fans. And I'm sure you have your share of nice, awesome fans, but I'm sure there are also some creepy ones. Is it weird at all to interact with your fans?
Not at all. I love meeting my fans. My fans that I've gotten a chance to meet over the past few years have all been kind of crazy, because they always say the most outrageous things. You just have to wonder sometimes what in the world made them ask that question. But I actually really love that. I kind of like shock value and they're always so sweet to me and they've supported me so well. I just love meeting them.
And they're so funny. I guess I really haven't had the, um -- privilege, I guess -- of meeting the creepy, creepy ones [laughs]. None of them have actually made me be like, "Ew, go away!"
Do you remember the weirdest question a fan has ever asked you?
Um, yeah. I've actually had a fan ask me -- because I did a DP scene -- to explain the difference between the penises that were both in my butt, and why I liked one more than the other. And I thought that was really weird because it was a straight guy.
Wait, so he wanted to know... Can you go over that again?
He wanted to know how they felt, like, what they felt like in my butt.
Sounds like a man who was born into the wrong body.
I think so. And he was there with his wife, so I was really just taken back by the whole question.
I don't blame you. I have to ask. Do you have a favorite song, album, or soundtrack to have sex to?
I really like "Ride" by SoMo. It comes on my Pandora all the time and it's probably one of my favorite songs. R&B would be the genre of my sex life.
